Cheshire Cat

The Cheshire Cat is a character in the classic Alice in Wonderland, written by Lewis Carroll. The cat appears frequently and engages Alice in bizarre conversation. He has the ability to disappear a piece at a time, and when the Red Queen orders him beheaded, escapes by making his body disappear.

The character is probably based on a specific type of cheese that was molded into a cat, which was made in Cheshire, England.
